I have to believe that if the little green alien people came from a distant planet and communicated with us all else about them might be alien but they would know in some fashion or other such things as Planck’s Constant, the velocity of light and the Wave Equation. I believe they might also find reasonable points of correspondence with our scientometrics even if their social arrangements were utterly different from our own.
